I see what you are saying.... the issue was (is) my Dad purchased the car years ago and did not finish the installation. Included in is many parts was a Trico vacuum motor. I had it rebuilt but now I will have to go on the hunt for a correct electric motor!

Anyone know who may have one for sale?

Vacuum wipers are a bit of a conversation starter.
